Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Entropy is an important concept in many fields related to communications. The concept of entropy was originally created by Shannon as part of his theory of communication, in which a data communication system is composed of three elements: a source of data, a communication channel, and a receiver. Many types of entropies and divergences are studied in many works. The theory of entropy represents an old topic of many mathematical areas which still remains an attractive research domain with many applications. The research results presented in this Special Issue concern the properties of different types of entropies and divergences, highlight their applications, and promote the exchange of ideas between mathematicians from many parts of the world. Entropies quantify the diversity, uncertainty, and randomness of a system. Many important types of entropies of divergences have applications in statistical mechanics, operators theory, networks theory, quantum information theory, statistics, etc. As an example, the concept of the Rényi entropy has been of great importance in statistics, ecology, theoretical computer science, etc.

Please note that all submitted papers should be within the scope of the journal.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Entropy is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
